Do you think ' counberbalance levies taxes create' sound idiomatic when I want to say the following ideas?

Governments should offset ( or counterbalce) the levies taxes create by spending some revenues for other public goals to benefit society.

    Isn't a levy a kind of tax? It seems odd to say that a tax creates a tax.

    No, that doesn't quite work. What is the word "create" doing in there at this point?
